    Help with informatio about Press king camera

    Hello all

    A few years ago I bought a Crown Graphics copy, a Press King camera manufactured by B&W Manufacturing Co. in Toronto. It was produced between 1948 and 1950 but that is all I know. Any additional information would be appreciated, both about the camera and the manufacturer.


    Thanks in advance

    For once KcKeown's has no more information than you posted. My 1994-95 Hove International Blue Book lists it as circa 1954, rare, and $180 in excellent condition with an Ektar 127mm lens.

    Also bears a family resemblance to my B&J Press. According to McKeown's it should have a revolving back. Look for a small metal catch on one of the top rear corners, which is where the B&J has the release. Looks like it has more movements than a Graphic. Does it?
